This beautiful chapel requires reservations booked at least a day ahead of time. However, once you have your reservation it works quite well. They send you in to a waiting room prior to your chapel visit where you see a good film with English subtitles. The film really helps set up the artwork you see in the chapel, which is... More

High praise from existing reviews was well deserved. A treat for art lovers and the chapel is powerfully beautiful. Well worth a visit and the entrance fee.

This chapel is stunning. Everyone goes on about the Sistine chapel in Rome, but for me this place is far more beautiful. The fact that only a few people are allowed in at one time means that you have a much more intimate experience. The chapel is also smaller and so all the frescoes are easily visible, with no crowds... More

You need to have time for this. The Cappella itself is small and exquisite, but there is a waiting area where you have to stop for a period of time to acclimatize. However, definitely worth doing

I loved watching this old building's walls full of history and amazing art. It was not easy to find it, even though is aside the main street but from outside looks so simple as an usual Church, getting in is just amazing.

Visiting Padova anyway is giving your wallet a well earned rest from Venice. A couple can have a long coffee and a sarni each for €6. We went specifically to see the Chapel but could have spent more time there. There is a lot more to see. We went at the end of March so took a gamble and just... More

Depending on the day, you may have to wait a bit to get in, as only a limited number of people are let in at a time. However, while waiting, you are treated to a short video that will put the building and Giotto's frescoes (the main attraction) into context. Once you get in, you will find it well worth... More

This truly is one of the gems of art. We went late in the evening as it was getting dark, which is a perfect time to get there. It is important to make a booking
